Watermelon and Feta

Ever since I can remember I have had a strong dislike for watermelon. However, I have changed my mind now that I have eaten it with feta, basil and olive oil. This is a signature dish served at the very trendy Sugar Club in London — it really is delicious!


For each person, you will need:

  • 3 wedges seedless, red watermelon
  • 1 oz. soft or firm feta cheese
  • 1 Tbs. good quality olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. small green basil leaves
  • 2 Tbs. raw pumpkin seeds


Remove the rind from the watermelon and cut in thin slices. Lay them overlapping on a pretty plate. Arrange the feta, basil leaves, and pumpkin seeds over the watermelon, and spoon over the olive oil.

Serve as a refreshing course after grilled and/or spicy foods.
